Overview

Today the Loddia del Grano is the place where you will find stalls with art and craft products from countries such as Senegal, Mali and India. It was originally planned by the architect Parigi in 1619 under the auspices of Grand Duke Cosimo II as a market for grain and various other cereals. The stores were above the vaulted roof and the market below it. Today the Loggia is a building which still has the front of a cinema long since closed. Before it became a cinema the building was a theatre ordered by Tommaso Salvini, an actor who lived during the second half of the 19th Century.
